10 Peaks Challenge 2024

I'm trekking the 10 Peaks Challenge for Youngcare

I decided to take on the Ten Peaks Challenge as I wanted to raise money for a cause that I care deeply about. I've seen first-hand the struggles and removal of choice that young people with high care needs are faced with. One of my close friends has been living with a physical disability that has impacted his independence and I want him and others just like him, to have the freedom of choice that we all take for granted.

Youngcare is a not-for-profit charity whose mission is to help improve the lives of young people with complex physical disabilities, and they receive no recurring government funding. So, although this trek might be hard, it's easy when compared to the day-to-day hardship that young people with disabilities experience throughout Australia every day. 

This particular trek and fundraising activity really resonated with me, as all the trekkers paid their own way to do this with all profits going to the actual cause and not to the cost of the trek. To me, this is what sets the Ten Peaks Challenge apart from others. Plus, I don’t like the cold or heights, so this will be fun!
